“I have learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.” ~ Nelson Mandela “Courage . Kindness. Friendship. Character. These are the qualities that define us as human beings, and propel us, on occasion, to greatness.” ~ R.J. Palacio, “Wonder”


ach day at Cotting School, we are privileged to share in our students’ many moments of progress and change. Success is measured in not only the acquisition of new skills and

abilities, but also in the growing capacity to overcome obstacles and pursue dreams. To accomplish their goals, our students exert enormous effort, show incredible determination, and display remarkable courage. With oversight and encouragement from our highlyqualified teachers and therapists, they work diligently to reach their highest level of achievement and independence. Everyone at Cotting is part of this process, but it is the students who teach us what courage looks like each day. Their perseverance and single-mindedness, as well as the environment here, make this possible. This Report attempts to document some of these student efforts. In these pages, we invite you to join us in celebrating

some of the moments of change and accomplishment in their lives, whether they are measured in hours, days, or an entire school year. First-time visitors to Cotting consistently comment on the extraordinary enthusiasm for life and positive sense of humor that permeate the atmosphere here. Similarly, they are tremendously impressed by our students. If you have never visited our School to witness this in action, please consider this your invitation. We would be delighted to welcome you!


A Year of Growth and Collaboration We opened our school year with a very special message of hope. Patrick Downes, who, along with his wife, Jess, was severely injured in the Boston Marathon bombing, gave Cotting’s Opening of School Address. With humor and optimism, Patrick reflected on his own care and stressed the value of communication and coordination among caregivers, the same communication and coordination that are evident at Cotting. He reminded us that when teachers, medical staff, physical, occupational, and communication therapists work together, care is appreciably better. We all know how hard our staff work, but Patrick reminded us that our students work hard, too! His testimony spearheaded a positive launch to the school year.   It is year four for HOPEhouse, our five-day boarding program, which serves young adults building skills for a successful transition to adult life. Cotting Consulting continues to grow, serving 121 students in 35 school districts. Our consultants facilitate curriculum access and functional independence in the classroom setting using both low-tech and high-tech solutions. The fourth annual Burr Family Conference: Making Things Possible focused on the theme of Social Success for students with disabilities. We were proud to have three Upper School students Tessa, Elizabeth, and Dan give our keynote address. These onceshy students confidently shared how they’ve grown, and how Cotting helped them with strategies for social success. A variety of evidence-based, practical strategies were shared in 38 workshops. In addition, vendors’ exhibits provided the opportunity to explore programs, services, and equipment. 


Cotting prides itself on working with other centers of excellence. Best Buddies provides mutual learning and social experiences for students in Middle and Upper School. AccesSportAmerica provides recreational services on campus. The Epic Service Warrior program partners with our students, giving them opportunities to increase their advocacy skills. In addition, this year, we welcomed Waypoint Adventure to our campus as they provided vocational and adventurebased opportunities for our students. Finally, a new projectbased learning assignment, Phinney’s Friends, joined us and provided our students with vocational opportunities in the area of pet supplies. Two new events broadened our outreach in the greater community. As part of the ReelAbilities Film Festival, we showed “Becoming Bulletproof” to a packed house in April. Additionally, with in-kind donations from local vendors and volunteers from colleges, businesses and high schools, we hosted a Hospitality Tent at the Special Olympics Massachusetts games at Harvard Stadium in June. Many young athletes and their cheering fans stopped by for rest, refreshments, and camaraderie. We look forward to these events again this coming year.

Thanks to Jeremiah Jordan of Clyde Media Productions, we produced a new video featuring Cotting parents. Focusing on what they would say to an incoming new parent on the first day at Cotting, these parents elaborated on how the School has changed their children and their families. To see this video and others, visit Cotting’s YouTube Channel. While you’re there, please subscribe; then check out our new website at! Thinking ahead to our 125th anniversary in three years, we are considering thoughtfully how best to optimize our space to serve the needs of our current and future students. It is a challenge similar to that faced by our co-founders when they opened Cotting School in the City of Boston in 1893. Like them, we hold the needs of our students as our first and foremost priority.  Thank you for joining with us in being part of and supporting this most worthy endeavor.

New Areas of Growth I

n the summer of 2016 we concluded a three-year project to update and improve our literacy programming. The Curriculum Institute, a group of faculty who spend the summer weeks focusing on a particular area of our curriculum, completed a total revision of our assessment and instructional practices in phonics, reading fluency, and comprehension. This included researching new techniques and programs, developing lesson plans and activities, and creating customized materials for all student reading levels.

At the same time, we began a comprehensive review of our math programming, with plans to continue to explore new curricula in the summer of 2017. As a first step, Jeanine Meredith, the 2016 Cotting Thorndike Fellow, developed a comprehensive framework and bank of materials for the 10th grade mathematics competency portfolio. This framework is a wonderful resource for those students working to meet their graduation requirements. While we strive to ensure students receive excellent curriculum and instruction in the classroom, our overarching goal is to prepare them for their eventual transition from Cotting. This year Michael Teuber was appointed to a newly-created position, Director of Transition Services. Michael will work to expand off-campus job development as part of the Project Bridges community work experience program, help coordinate inclusive college experiences, and create employment opportunities for older students in their home communities. In addition, we’ve introduced a new class for Upper School students, World of Work, which focuses on helping students to develop work-readiness skills. Cotting staff’s commitment to a culture of innovation and collaboration is evident in all aspects of our school. We are grateful for the continued partnership of all members of our community that makes change and growth possible for our students! Krista Macari Chief Academic Officer


Seconds of Courage... “A

fter attending Cotting for over two years, Tom fell seriously ill in 2015, missing school due to hospital visits, medical appointments, and chronic fatigue. When strong enough, he Skyped in to keep up with his schoolwork and chat with his friends. Tom’s Cotting team and Cotting Consulting provided tutoring at home and a full array of therapy services through Skype, so he could return as soon as he was ready.

“Finally, in June 2016, he turned a corner and began inching his way back to regain what he had lost. Courageously determined to return to Cotting, he began biking, swimming, and kayaking with his siblings to regain his strength and stamina. In September, he was thrilled to rejoin his class. Along with his schoolwork, he has resumed playing flag football and his Project Bridges job at Perkins Radio station. Tom is looking at colleges for next year and eagerly participates in basketball. His peers elected Tom the Senior Class President of the Class of 2017. “Someday Tom wants to mentor other students undergoing medical challenges similar to his.” Kate and Tom Buckley


Minutes of Endurance “F

riendly and funny, Elise is a helper and a learner; that’s her personality. At a young age, she fit in with her peers, but then, as she got older, all the pieces of her school life no longer fit together. She could pass in some areas, but then she would fail in others. The social pieces weren’t always easy. Elise started missing benchmarks and was mislabeled. What was called ‘inclusive’ was not actually fully inclusive. Elise endured because she had no choice.

“Things changed right away at Cotting, where she felt immediately accepted. Elise is now in a genuine community. She has made a wide range of friends of all ages. Class trips into the community have given her the chance to apply the life skills she’s learned. Through her community work placements in Project Bridges, Elise has worked at Drumlin Farm and at the Discovery Museum in Acton. She loves industrial arts, performing arts, and art classes. “We are delighted that Cotting has academics with expectations; she has to do her homework, and she enjoys the challenges she’s given. Cotting has given her skills and confidence, which she will need going forward. Now her day starts early, and she’s always ready to go. The learning never stops! Rhonda and Peter Dion


Hours of Determination “A

t birth Anthony faced complex challenges, yet through hours of determined, hard work with his teachers at Cotting, he is reading, writing and conversing with his peers. He uses Touch Math and a calculator to learn multiplication, money, and time. His class uses Fantasy Football statistics once a week as they work on math skills. Because help is available if he needs it, Anthony personifies a goal Cotting has for all students: to work with increased independence. Through determined, careful effort, he has gained trust in his teachers and classmates, which is enabling further self-awareness and productive social interactions.

“His teacher told me that when Anthony sees that something needs to be done in the classroom, he is thoughtful and helpful as he takes care of it without being asked. He has matured so much; the change in him is terrific! Cotting is how school should be everywhere!” Lisa Peabody


Afternoons of Friendship B

efore our son entered Cotting, all we wanted for him was to be included. Eight years ago, Justin started at Cotting and his life’s trajectory started to change. Reading, writing, math and science were no longer just concepts; he felt a sense of accomplishment as he began to learn and enjoy school. From the beginning, he felt comfortable and accepted by his peers.

“Justin throws clay pots in art, inputs data at Lahey Medical Center through his community work experience through Project Bridges, and helps Waypoint Adventure clean equipment after a trip. Pleasant, reliable, and friendly, Justin is a dependable, hard worker who, when he sees that something needs to be done, takes care of it without being asked. He plays soccer, tennis, and runs track; Justin overcame his dislike of the loud buzzer in basketball and now it’s his favorite sport. “Friday afternoons at Circle of Friends have given him the opportunity to develop new friendships, learn social skills, and gain increased confidence and self-esteem, which has furthered his independence. Justin stays in frequent touch with current and past classmates, and we are delighted that for the last two years, he has enjoyed attending the prom!” Rosemarie and Tony Cermenaro


Evenings of Belonging “O

n my initial visit to Cotting, it was seeing the library photos of the prom and the ski trip that convinced me that my daughter Po should apply here. My goals were for Po to make friends and to experience a full community life, and I realized that Cotting might be the unique context in which those goals could be realized.

This is Po’s ninth year here. She has made friendships that I hope will last a lifetime. She has participated in activities - ranging from chorus through drama and basketball to skiing - that I had never envisioned as options for her. It wouldn’t have been possible without the support from the Cotting staff, and the result has been a reservoir of experiences that have not only expanded her horizons, but also strengthened her skill sets and reinforced her enthusiasm to “try everything.”

For me, the school basketball games best exemplify the Cotting spirit. The court represents a “level playing field” in a sense opposite to how the term is usually defined. The rest of the world thinks it means that everyone plays by the same rules, that no one has an unfair advantage. At Cotting, fairness in basketball means acknowledging the diversity of individuals, modifying the rules taking into account each player’s ability, and providing him or her with the accommodations without which it might not be possible even to be on the court, but with which players can truly function as members of a team. As a result of her years on Cotting’s level playing field, Po is stronger, more confident, and, I hope, even better equipped to face life after Cotting. Erica Jen


Days of Learning “B

efore Cotting, Paulo would cry in the evenings hoping for snow. He never addressed his teachers by name; socially, he was not really there. He preferred going to a doctor’s appointment than to school. Eight years at Cotting later, he’s a completely different student! Paulo addresses his teachers by name, engages in conversation, jokes with them, and is quite outgoing. He claims, ‘They need me in school!’

“Paulo uses technology now. He uses a tablet to arrange his schedule and a calculator to do math; he conducts internet searches independently. In Project Bridges, he assembles flowers in vases and delivers them to residents at Waltham Crossings. Through it all, the Medical department keeps me informed so I can communicate necessary information to Paulo’s doctors. “A postgrad, Paulo prepares to transition out in the spring of 2017. I don’t know how his teachers were able to do so much for him. The staff here is amazing; they have both the degrees and the temperament to do this work. I wish there were more of them!” Carmelita Alvero


Weeks of Independence - HOPEhouse “H

OPEhouse at Cotting School serves students ages 17-22 five days per week to provide transition planning with a focus on self-determination. Utilizing The Ride has enabled students in this active 180-day program to develop a new level of independence. Each student at HOPEhouse learns to travel alone to access the community. Each young adult develops an awareness of safety and boundaries. They experience making informed decisions, some for the first time, and are given the opportunity to progress through experience while in a safe place. At HOPEhouse, it’s okay to make the wrong choice; these young adults get to experience the consequences of their actions in a safe environment as part of developing independence. And in the meantime, they learn to significantly expand their world using community resources.

Zoe Thibodeau HOPEhouse Program Director


Months of Perseverance “T

welve years at Cotting laid the groundwork for a successful transition for Megan, a Cotting graduate in the class of 2016. Megan was quite shy when she first arrived in Cotting’s lower school. Careful work on the part of Cotting staff in all areas of her schooling and therapies, coupled with her own perseverance, led to steady increases in self-confidence. We owe it all to Cotting!” says her mother, Joan Leyden.

Megan recalls how Cotting staff prepared her for the world of work. “In middle school, I began shredding, stamping, and packaging jobs at Cotting. I cleared ketchup bottles and wiped down tables in the cafeteria. I started doing weekly jobs in the community through Project Bridges in upper school. I filed parking violations at the Waltham Police Department; stamped documents, and entered data at Lahey Lexington; I helped children color, I read them stories, and organized games in the toddler room at the Magic Garden Children’s Center. “I love working with children and requested Project Bridges work at St. Michael’s School during my senior year, since it is located five miles from my home. In the Pre-K classroom, I helped with crafts activities, read stories, and put notices in students’ folders. In the library, I labeled, sorted, and shelved books. The good news is: they hired me! I still work in the library one day and one day I work wherever I am needed. Everyone calls me Miss Megan. I fill in a time sheet, and I like getting paid!” Megan and Joan Leyden

This Louise Nevelson-influenced installation was created by a group of Cotting students. Each relief sculpture was assembled and glued using scraps of wood thoughtfully arranged onto a plywood base. Students were asked to think about the whole space, by paying equal attention to the negative space. The juxtaposition of the wood forms was important. Students were asked not to overlap, but to keep pieces as level as possible. Each student painted his/her piece in a cool, mono-tone shade by adding a small amount of black to the color.
